Olin Business School and Brown School of Social Work are thrilled to have you attend the 6th Annual 2021 Impact Investing Symposium. This year's virtual symposium (iimidwest.org) will go beyond theory and delve into methodological approaches to impact investing: what metrics do organizations use, what outcomes are achieved, and are there opportunities for collaboration through shared metrics and outcomes? A diverse set of current topics in impact investing will make the symposium applicable and interesting for both industry and student audiences.
